There are some people too dumb to grasp the concept of irony.
President Barack Obama said Mitt Romney has locked himself into “extreme positions” on economic and social issues and would surely impose them if elected, trying to discredit his Republican rival at the biggest political moment of his life.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Obama said Romney lacks serious ideas, refuses to “own up” to the responsibilities of what it takes to be president, and deals in factually dishonest arguments that could soon haunt him in face-to-face debates.
Obama also offered a glimpse of how he would govern in a second term of divided government, insisting rosily that the forces of the election would help break Washington’s stalemate. He said he would be willing to make a range of compromises with Republicans, confident there are some who would rather make deals than remain part of “one of the least productive Congresses in American history.”
Mainly, Obama was intent on countering Romney even before his challenger got to the Republican National Convention, which starts Monday in Tampa, Fla . In doing so, the president depicted his opponent as having accumulated ideas far outside the mainstream with no room to turn back.
So President Downgrade, who presided over the first credit rating hit to the federal government, who is robbing Medicare to pay for Obamacare, who has overseen the deadliest political scandal in Presidential history in his various gun-walking plots, and who appointed communists like Van Jones to high ranking positions within his Administration, has the gall to call Mitt “I don’t drink caffeine or alcohol” Romney “extreme?”
Coming from an infanticide-supporting radical who learned his hate from a communist mentor (Frank Marshall Davis), Black Liberation Theology-espousing radical pastor (Jeremiah Wright), and Critical Race Theory racist Derrick Bell, and who married a woman who argued for race-based hiring, this is rich material indeed.
